Fire Prevention Week 2020

Fire Prevention Week was October 4 to 10, 2020. The campaign theme this year was “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” and works to remind you about simple but important actions you can take to keep you and those around you safe while in the kitchen.

Only YOU can prevent cooking fires. Please stay safe in the kitchen.

The Oakville Fire Department encourages all residents to embrace the 2020 Fire Prevention Week theme, and keep these home cooking safety tips in mind.
